Santorini Cruises

don't miss

Sunbathing on the black beaches at Kamari and Perissa or on the famous Red Beach.

Hike or drive to the Monastery of Prophet Elias for mind-boggling panoramic views.

You’ll be stunned by a Santorini holiday, with its blue-domed churches and whitewashed villages perched high above shimmering seas, and jaw-dropping sunsets that take your breath away. A spectacular destination on your Greek or Croatia cruise, Santorini is part of a crater formed by a huge volcanic eruption in the sea.

You’ll be in paradise lazing on its beaches of black, pink and grey volcanic sand or snorkelling in the crystal waters of the Aegean. Imagine you’re in heaven in the clifftop town of Oia, taking in the eye-popping panoramic views, or get a crash course in history at the amazing excavations at Akrotiri, a Minoan city buried for centuries under volcanic ash.

When you’re on a holiday in Santorini, don’t forget to treat yourself with a tour of Santorini’s excellent vineyards and to sample delicious local food, such as spinach pastries, pomegranates and fried cheese.
